  • Product description

    One of the world’s most hardcore hardtails has just become even more hardcore! - Hornet has been changed in a real beast. Looking to run fork with 180mm travel? Here you are! Triple crown fork? Why not! Drops, jumps, downhills and freeride is a walk in the park for the new Hornet. As with all of the Dartmoor’s range versatility is a key design brief. The Hornet is capable of running up to 2.8” tires on 27.5” rims! Sharing the same front triangle tubes as our Roots Downhill bike the Hornet really packs a sting!

    Budget beast!

    Strengths: Lovely geometry when paired with 160mm fork, Looks great

    Weaknesses: Poor paint finish

    I built up this frame using 50% new parts and 50% parts from my Cannondale Jekyll. It uses Pike 160mm forks, 1x10 gearing. The frame has boosted my confidence over the full suspension Jekyll, probably because the size is perfect for me, whereas the Jekyll was a little small.

    The paint on the Dartmoor frame isn't great quality, I saw this in other reviews and wasn't too bothered. I would recommend being very careful during assembly and use some 3M Helitape to protect to frame in areas prone to foot / cable rub. There's a small patch with missing paint but still lacquered, so I guess they do a very quick spray job on the frame.

    That said, it still looks nice and at around £230, you really can't complain. The welds and build quality look OK, so a little bit of missing paint isn't a huge issue.

    26bikes were very good with the whole order too, keeping me informed about delivery (The frame wasn't in stock, so I had to wait, but they kept me up to date with progress from the distributor).

    All in all, great service and a lovely frame for not too much money. Thanks guys!

    Jeckyll and Hyde

    Strengths: The frame is like Jeckyl and Hyde; Capable of XC and Downhill , Very solid and bombproof frame, Perfect sizing (Bike = Size L I`m 1.88cm),

    Weaknesses: Paintfinish isn`t all that. And the brakemount needed a litlle shaving. , The routing for the cables and brakehousings is somewhat funny.

    The frame is like Jeckyll and Hyde.
    It looks and feels really solid and bombproof. It`s capable as an XC weekendwarrior (if the travel isn`t higher than 140mm) and freeride/downhill beast. Currently I`m running the frame with 120mm travel and 27,5" wheels with 2.35 tires. Even now it`s capable of some serious shreddin` But I did run the frame with 160mm travel, downhill is just a big adrenalin rush. Due to the long toptube, long wheelbase and good standover, the bike makes you look better than you are and gives a lot of confidence.

    Some points of attention:

    The paintwork isn`t that good. Some spots on the frame are not fully covered.
    The brakemount needed a little shaving to fit the brakecaliper perfect.
    The routing for the cables and brakehousings is somewhat funny if your running a dropperpost with external cable. Also I like to run the rear brakehose on the downtube, via the bracket and chainstay. I had to McGyver something with zip ties.

    The service of 26bikes.com is spot on. During the delivery process they kept me informed about the status. That`s something other resellers could take an example of.
